We don't need to follow Ubuntu or Debian in every not-so-smart decision they
make, we haven't followed them with the multiarch ugliness, I hope we don't
follow them in this either.  Security risks aren't primarily about the size
of codebase, but about attention to detail by the maintainers, which doesn't
look something dash excells in.
